Scrapping Family Dinner Time

Time Capsule: Weekly Challenge #27… Extended

Good morning blog readers!!  I’m excited to share this week’s challenge with you.  When I first read the challenge, I was excited.  One thing I hold dear to my heart is our family dinner time.

Chicken Spaghetti RecipeIn different forums, I’ve read about what is normal in each family.  I feel lucky enough in my family to have my family eat all together, at the dinner table each night.  Some nights, we might eat late but we eat 95% of the time as a family.  Also, I love to cook dinner, not reheat frozen food!!

So when I read the challenge, I wanted share and document the items I find useful when I cook dinner.  I immediately hit the scrapbook stores and searched kitchen.  I found a few here and there.  I looked for a kit that would fit my style.  When I search for a kit, I also search the gallery to get ideas of what is in that kit.  That was my next step!  Then of course, since I’m in the gallery I look at layout ideas as well!

I mentally took notes of ideas and thoughts I liked in the galleries.  Then I set down to work!  I have my go-to cookbooks I knew I had to put in the layout.  Also, I am a menu planner.  I actually keep past menus for ideas.  Those needed to be in there too!   I would love to throw the idea out there for meal planning, plan meals that use the same meat in a different way so you only have to cook the meat once!

Here a site I found with the perfect menu planner!!



Kate LewisI’m Kate Lewis.  I live in a rural town in Utah.  I have 3 kiddos and a loving hubby.  I’m currently teaching kindergarten to 20 little darlings.  I love to cook, bake, and read but really who has time for that?  I really prefer to spend my free nights snuggled up in pj’s watching a movie with my family.  Digi-scrapping became my stress reliever!!  Unfortunately I am not able to spend as much time as I’d like!!  So I live with the stress!  I also love the hybrid aspect of the digi world!!  If I have a free minute, I try to update my blog  If you get a chance, check it out!!!
